WWE vs. ROH: This Could Be a Very Short War

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IAugust 24, 2009

Hello everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for joining me today.


When Shane had reported that ROH was going to move to Monday nights on his rumor article, I had really hoped it was one of those rumors that would not come true. I think it was a very bad move on ROH’s part to make a move on Vince’s turf.


I do realize that it will air at 8 p.m. it still is on Monday’s nights, and as far as Vince is concerned that is his night for wrestling. Of course there is a possibility this could be nothing.


Bryan Danielson’s signing could have been nothing more than mere coincidence. Somehow, though, I don’t think anyone with common sense believes that story. While I doubt it will ever be confirmed I think most people knows what that signing meant.


I don’t want you to get me wrong here. I am happy that ROH is showing some gumption and is trying to make a play for a bigger piece of the wrestling market. I just think they might have been better off attacking TNA first.


Whether you like him or not Vince McMahon is a genius when it comes to wrestling. I know he can get lazy when there is no competition. Once he has some though he is like a lion on the attack.


He is ruthless and has no boundaries in the ways he will tear you apart. I have said this before and I will say it again. You never want to poke at a sleeping bear only bad things will result in doing this.


If you think the WWE signing Bryan Danielson was bad just wait; that was only the beginning. ROH has to be really careful with the way they go about their business now. They also need to be smart and lock in the talent they have right now.


This would mean that they would have to actually spend a little bit of their earnings on the talent. It also might help ROH to try and sign some marquee talent. Kurt Angles contract is ending soon from what I hear.


He would be perfect for the ROH; he would not only bring instant ratings, but he would also make the workers they have ten times better. It’s going to take a little work and effort for ROH to play with the big boys now.


The ROH is going to be in a fight for their lives though. That my friends you can take to the bank. I hope they do well though it is nice to see someone step up and give Vince a little challenge.


At least it gives us something new to write and talk about. It’s been a while since we have seen a good rasslin war. It may end up being a short one but I will enjoy it all the same. Maybe ROH can step up to the plate and hit a homer, who knows?


I just hope people don’t get some crazy idea thought that Vince can lose to ROH. That would never happen in a million years. Vince owns wrestling in the U.S right now. This may be a sad fact but it's also one that’s true.


The best ROH can do is try to move to the number two spot in the wrestling market. Maybe they will also smarten up a little and try not to burn bridges. It’s always better to try to be on working terms with your competition.


There is no reason the both of these organizations can't have a working relationship. As far as I knew Vince always had a mutual working relationship with ROH. I hope that this is still the case but there is a good chance things could get ugly.


Only time will tell if ROH made a big mistake. It's not guaranteed that ROH would get killed if they fought; this could very well make ROH stronger.


It’s also a good possibility that we may soon see ROH added to the list of many defunct organizations. Don’t worry though we still get to see it, the only difference would be that it would be shown on WWE on demand.


I would like to thank all of you again for joining me today.


As always, have a great day and God bless.
